With a gritty baritone that calls to mind Jamey Johnson and a knack for observational, at times personal, songwriting, Dillon has a profound respect for country music that was imparted on him by two uncles who know a little something about entertaining: John Michael Montgomery and Montgomery Gentry's Eddie Montgomery.
Both encouraged Dillon's own talent, but they didn't mince words, reminding their nephew that he'd have to pay his dues. Which Dillon did by moving to Nashville and hunkering down to write every day. When he wasn't in a songwriting session, the burly guy was literally protecting country music's traditions – he worked as the night watchman at the Grand Ole Opry House, where he was so in awe of the building's history that he refused to stand in the famous Opry circle after hours with his co-workers.
Now, as a signed artist with Riser House Entertainment and with five years of songs under his belt, he takes a step closer to deserving to be on the Opry stage.
